Good Small Practice

Spend time with the good employees and less correcting the not so productive or at least equal amounts of time. It felt that the productive employees who got things done right had less access to partner’s time and feedback.

It gave me a chance to work in various areas during my OPT when I finished my Masters. Very knowledgeable in IP, business Imm, Fed litigation, Corporate.

A lot of volume, small firm, was a one year position.

Great office location. International clients. Very diverse firm everyone of different backgrounds.

Worst Experience

Be professional, and treat employees with respect. Note that today everybody have social media, so it is easy for the newcomer to contact the old employees and ask questions about the firm.

None

Office environment and pay. They want you to work long hours without paying over-time. Partner behavior is the worst think I have ever experienced. Oxford Medical insurance with a very high deductible.

The solo-owner partner, Mr. Arrufat. Why? He is a complicated person, very difficult to work with him, he screams, speaks out load, tells you that you do everything wrong. It seems that he is like a frustrated person who wants to pay his frustration with others to feel his best.

I took a position as a Trademark Attorney with Arrufat Gracia. As a Junior I had continuos interaction with the clients. In the trademark area most clients were international companies. I did mostly trademarks but I had exposer to other areas when I asked (mostly a few corporate and comercial real estate cases). Firm has good reputation in the IP world. Benefits that I remember were 401k, healthcare (Oxford 75% paid by the firm), $1000 of annual bar membership dues reimbursement. Mr. Arrufat was very supportive when I transitioned to a new career and provided good references. We have spoken from time to time. When I left I was trained to join big firms. Most attorneys from here go to large lawfirms.

The firm charges clients very adjusted legal fees, often flat fees for trademark and transactions. They equally pay low salaries to employees. However both the partner and the clients demand quality equal to a big firm. Salaries are a bit off for attorneys and paralegals in NY with more than 2 years of experience so I ended leaving for a . I inherently a lot of cases of other attorneys which is not as nice as starting fresh.

Exposure to clients, focus on research under the correct sources of law, cases assigned so you see entire cases, access to multiple areas of practice.
